Year 2 have been exploring floating and sinking over the past few weeks. This week the children were able to test their ideas using a range of objects.
Challenge 1 – how do you make an orange sink?
Challenge 2 – how can you use salt to make an egg float?
Challenge 3 – which objects will sink and which objects will float? Why?
Challenge 4 – can you make play dough float?

“We all had a turn at each activity. I liked trying to make the orange sink and I was shocked when Miss Brown revealed the answer!”

“I loved trying to make my egg float and it worked. It was lots of fun making different shapes using playdough.”


Sports day….ready, steady, GO!

Year 2 had great fun during their sports day last Wednesday, especially as the sun was shining! Everyone was split into teams…we had Sharks, Dolphins, Jellyfish, Starfish, Stingrays and even the Octopus team.

Everyone joined in with a carousel of activities and kept their own team score sheet so we were all active for every minute of sports day.

After some VERY high scores, the 2014 Year 2 champions were ……..The Stingrays but well done to everyone who took part!



On Friday 6th June, Year 2 went to Weston-Super-Mare for the day.
We gathered in the school hall and everyone was so excited! We got on the coach and children started to sing and talk about what they were going to do at the beach. As we got closer we looked out for signs to tell us where to go. The sun was shining and it was lovely and warm.
When we got off the coach we headed to the beach to find a good spot. We spent ages building enormous sandcastles! Soon it was time for lunch. We all had lots of sandwiches and treats but we had to guard our food from all the seagulls.
After lunch we had a turn on the donkeys. They were lots of fun! We went on the pier and we went all the way to the end. When we looked down we could see all the water underneath…it was a little scary!
Finally we went for a tasty ice-cream to cool down. It was soon time to head back to the coach to come home. We all had such a lovely and busy time that some of us fell asleep on the coach. It was a BRILLIANT day!

What was your favourite part of the day?
